Local, state reaction mixed on health ruling
Family Health Partnership Clinic Executive Director Suzanne Hoban said in a statement that she is pleased with the Supreme Court's ruling Thursday upholding most of President Barack Obama's historic yet controversial health care reform law. But she said that some McHenry County residents still will fall through the cracks.
She cited a 2011 study by the Urban Institute that projected the effects of the law on each state. The clinic, based in Woodstock, provides primary and some specialty care to the uninsured.
"While I am personally very happy that the key points of the health reform law have been upheld, the unfortunate reality is that in McHenry County, more than 20,000 people will still be without health insurance when this fully takes effect," Hoban said.
